I'm trying to get my knitting queue together for the next couple months. These are all the projects rolling around in my head...
Scary, huh? Makes you wonder how I can think about anything else. This project cluster probably isn't even exhaustive, but the list changes daily (maybe even hourly). Hopefully, having a record of these projects will organize my mind a bit. We'll start from the top.
Aimee from Rowan Vintage Knits. This little number has been the apple of my eye for quite some time. I have no idea why I haven't made it yet. I wonder if it's already too warm to try to squeeze it this season. This is one of the few projects always on the list.
Wobbly Tote from Interweave Knits Spring. How can you not love this bag? It's cuteness and durability coupled with an intarsia tutorial on the page before are what landed this on the knitting queue. I think this will be a good first intarsia project because the felting will help hide any mistakes (which there are sure to be). This would be a good gift, too.
Baby Bobby Bear by Blue Sky Alpaca. I would love to make one of these for myself, but think it will probably be a gift for my nephew or another kid. Although, I'm sure it will ne nice and snuggly for adults, too.
Cyd by Jaeger. What can I say, I'm on a sweatervest kick. This combined with my love of argyle drew me to this piece. I'll probably knit it in the late summer / early fall. Definitely not to be for this season (even though it doesn't get warm in Boston until the end of May).
Hike from Rowan 37. I love this sweater and know it would be one I'd wear for days in a row during the transition between seasons and for summer nights. I'm especially drawn in by the pockets and their construction. Down side of this sweater, the tons of stockinette look boring.
Chicago from Rowan 37. This sweater catches my eye everytime I see it. I even love the color, although it would never work with my skin tone. This piece could fit into all sectors of my wardrobe from work clothes, to play clothes, to night clothes. ***I'm fighting the urge to go to LYS for yarn right now.
Prairie Tunic from Interweave Spring. Love it, so cute for summer.
....now going right to left.....
Jewel from Rowan 39. This is the first project to catch my eye in this mag. I even went to the LYS for yarn for this baby. The colors they stocked were mostly pastel and didn't jump out at me. Also, tfhe longer I thought about it, I couldn't justify spending $110+ on this sweater. Calmer is $$$$! The jury is out on this one.
Trek from Rowan 37. I'm torn between this one and Hike. This one looks like more fun to knit, but it doesn't have those kick-ass pockets like Hike.
Butterfly from Rowan 37. I've been drooling over this since I started knitting (so what if that was only 6 months ago!). I just bought some yarn for the camisole (see below). I was torn for awhile between the cami and dress, but think I'll get more use out of the cami.
Bangle Bag. Have yarn, will make.
Apricot Jacket by Rebecca. Love, but have no materials for.
Rambling Rose from Rowan 39. I think this might be one of the next project. I'm still intimidated by the toothpick needles, but will deal for this beautiful sweater. Also dealing with fear of ss boredom.
Orangina by Glampyre. Love love love. Will def. make this summer.
Rythmic from Rowan 38. Will make, have yarn.
Minisweater by Glampyre. will make with some leftover yarn.
Somewhat Cowl by knitandtonic. Cute, classic sweater.
Bobbie Blue from Interweave Spring. I love this sweater. I bought the specified yarn (super cheap at discountyarnsale.com) and it's arriving on Thursday. Woo hoo. Bobbles here I come. I think I'm the only knitter who loves bobbles.
Joy from Rowan Vintage Knits. A fall knit. Teeny tiny needles, but for this sweater it's worth it.
Toledo from Rowan 37. Another summer knit.
I just realized a project I forgot. Hot Lava! I drool at the Manos Wildflower colorway everytime I go to the LYS. I think this would be perfect. I might wait for the new similar pattern, though.
Phew. This list might not be exhaustive, but I'm exhausted now.
Now for a few stash enhancements....
Socks that Rock in the Carbon Dating colorway. My first STR!
Sundara Yarn in "Trompe l'oeil"
One of these yarns is for Jaywalkers. Any opinions on which would look better?
3 balls Kidsilk Haze in Blushes for Butterfly!
I've actually been knitting, too. Here's the first finished half of Backyard Leaves. I'm 4 repeats through the second half.
